2. My main account - Assisted AIm Parital then go to friend list and join my second account session
3. Just waiting for loading
4. I got a black screen said you can't join this session because different AIM
5. Accept and I saw on controller "blue" Michael
6. Waiting then I'm in different session
7. Re again join my second account's session and accept screen
8. Really strange all players lagging out and only see my second account in "solo" lobby

Last couple days i land in a solo lobby first load in, but when i don't, i start lobby hopping until i load into an empty, not using spawn location casino penthouse I get them often without glitches. If it hits 4/5 players however it likes to list the lobby tho

I just NAT type it, and 99.9% of the time, no one else joins even when a friend is in the session. Not using wifi on my main XB1 hardwired to get the full benefits of 1Gbps speed...

I usually watch tv in an apartment at the end of the day to get rid of dodgy player and the next morning I'm always in a solo public lobby.

I'm on Xbox which has the easy NAT test option. Before this I used to use a playlist "glitch". It's old but may be worth a try?
I don't know if it still works or if it ever worked on PS4.

1. Create a playlist with one short race in it. Long races just took longer but still worked.
2. Join a public session.
3. Start your playlist and run the race (complete it).
4. At the end you should have the option to 'Restart' (square).
5. At this point, while it's thinking about loading you into the next lobby, invite a friend.
6. Have the friend leave/back out of the lobby once he/she has joined.

The friend would then have been in a solo public session. After you back out into a regular public session, your friend can invite you.
If I recall correctly, once you've invited 4 or more into it, it can then populate as normal. Until then you should be good.
They patched the easier version but AFAIK they never did take the 2 player workaround.

Good luck. I hope it works for Playstation.

For PS4 I use mtu 750.
After that I can invite 4 friends and change back my mtu settings. As long as I join via invite, the session won't be populated

if you are using WIFI and you have access to the router,
walk to your router,
unplug the ethernet cable for 15-17 seconds then plug it back,
enjoy solo public session
